It is very difficult for me to strictly label Head of the Demon’s Sathanas Trismegistos as doom metal, I just find it very difficult to place it anywhere else. This is about as epic as doom metal can get. Usually when a band tries to make an epic doom album the words boring, yawn, sleepy come to mind, with Sathanas Trismegistos the words phenomenal, extraordinary, unique, and impressive come to mind.

There is an undertone of black metal that drives this album alongside its mainly doom metal overture. My favorite part about this album is the fusing of elements of psychedelic rock into the already solid doom and black metal presentation without eliminating the evil sounding vibes. This is a magnificent album with a lot of creativity oozing from each riff. There is a thick atmosphere of occult that surrounds this album like a black aura. There is an evil energy that dwells in this album. It feels like this album is channeling spirits from another realm or dimension.

Each song on Head of the Demon’s new album is hypnotic and desensitizing. Each track has these little riff passages that rip hard as hell. This album definitely has some sort of spell that casts itself upon you. Simplicity played with perfect timing is the key to Sathanas Trismegistos. This is a solid doom metal album that is strictly true to itself and genre.

There is not much in the doom metal world, of black metal for that matter, that I would compare Head of the Demon to. Sathanas Trismegistos is a uniquely rich experience that holds no comparison. This is one of those albums that is going to change the way the genre of doom is thought about.

 

Sathanas Trismegistos will be released by Invictus Productions on  April 30th  for Europe and  the Anja Offensive will be releasing this June 24th for North America.
